I plan on moving ISP's and wondering if you get to keep your email address? I know theres a fee if you want to do remote mail but I only plan to use their webmail.

Looked on the Xtra website but it isn't very helpful and I haven't found an email to ask about it either.

If you want to keep an Xtra email address, then you will need to retain an account with Xtra and pay Xtra for that account.

It is not common to retain a ".xtra.co.nz" email address if your ISP is someone else. Most people use a free Gmail address or similar for a more permanent identity, which means you can use any ISP.

Or as I do, have you own domain name, then your address goes with you.

I just talked with a mate who still has theres but doesn't have Xtra as an ISP.

They were probably lucky. Oh well.

Its $2.50 to keep an email only account. Secure Remote is extra and doesn't work properly anyway.

Damn I might as well use my own domain. Saves me $15+ a year :D

Just getting everyone who emails me to get the new email address is a hassle.
